Right Tools for Embossing; a Bewitching Card!

Crafters always want to know where to get an embossing tray like mine, and now you can! The Embossing Additions Tool Kit is available again (for a limited time?) in the July-December mini catalog, and I showcased it today under a little heat…um, I mean heat embossing.

Actually, the air conditioning converter at my house went out, so I was sweating and stamping at the same time! Not to worry, the repairman came after my video and fixed it. But not before I forgot to show you how to use the Reverse Tweezers in the kit. Oh well, the magic of editing helps.

And not only did we emboss, but I showed how to create a mask from the Dots & Spots die for the background! Keep the mask you create in the envelope with the die and I promise, you’ll find excuses to use it often with your blending brushes. The die is one of the products added to Sale-a-Bration in August and you can see the rest of the freebies-with-qualifying purchase HERE.

Just remember that there are two item numbers for the die: Item #159164 for PURCHASING the die, and item #163098 if you want to redeem it free with a $100 purchase during August 2022.

Watch the how-to video, then get shopping to get your Embossing Addition kit while it’s back in the catalog:

Birthday Chick All Wired Up

I miss my chickens.

Consoling myself with stamped chickens is (only) slightly less messy and time consuming, but there aren’t any delicious eggs to look forward to. It’s all good though, because these hens from the Birthday Chick stamp set make me laugh as much as the live versions did!

This greeting card started with the TGIF Challenge on Friday to use our background stamps: The All Wired Up background had been on my mind since the chicks arrived!

By using the new Blending Brushes to add a little extra Granny Apple Green ink at the bottom of the background, it added on Ombre element that helps Chunky Clucky really pop off as the focal point!

You may be asking…where did the picket fence come from? Did you fussy cut Chunky Clucky? Well, my friends, I have good news for you: On February 2nd, customers will be able to order coordinating dies (and that’s not all, so stay tuned)!
